The younger branches of the dynasty quickly expanded and their political influence extended across Europe.
The brothers of Hugues "Capet" King of France were installed as dukes of Burgundy from 956 to 1002, and Robert younger son of Robert II King of France established the main line of dukes which ruled Burgundy from 1032 until 1361 (see the document BURGUNDY DUCHY, DUKES), as well as the kings of Portugal from  until the revolution in 1910 (see PORTUGAL KINGS).
costars Alexander Ludwig and Leven Rambin—who play tributes Cato and Glimmer—has surfaced showing the twosome cuddling and kissing outside the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.

The Capetian kings first ruled France from 888 to 898 and from 922 to 923.
The dynasty established itself more permanently in 987, when Hugues "Capet" was elected king in succession to the last king of the Carolingian dynasty, Louis V.
Regardless of any other commitments, Leven still snuggles up to Alexander, tucking her arms under his shirt in another intimate gesture.
And Hunger Games hunk Alexander Ludwig is clearly smitten with the Boston-based model as the pair have been inseparable during the winter holidays. #love to you and your loved ones,' Ludwig tweeted to his 279,000 followers.
bash in January as well, we're thinking this whole posse is fully taking advantage of their newfound fame.
